Making delicious breads.

Advantages: Easy to use and give very good results
Disadvantages: Takes quite a long time to bake a bread.
I have always thought the break makers are very difficult as, for some reason, I believe you have to put all the ingredient together, knead, left to dough for it to rise and then put it in the machine. However this product completely put my strange imagination to dust. It's so easy and simple to use.
Firstly, we have this break maker in the house but I didn't buy it, my parents bought it actually. My first thought was that it looks simple and has a very cute design and didn't take up much space. It was very easy to set up for my parents, considering they didn't ask me once for help. The price paid for was a little over £100 pounds, but it may vary depending on promotions and stores.
The best part is that it comes with an easy-to-read and understandable instruction booklet, so that even a bread rookie like me can sometimes have a go at making a bread of my choice. The instructions are simple enough and, as long as you have the necessary ingredients on hand, you can just put them in the machine, choose your programme option and wait: the machine does all the work for you.
However, the only other thing you need is patience as the whole bread making process can take about 4 hours. Note that I haven't actually timed it before, I just leave it as soon as I close the lid and go off to do other things. Another good quality is that it doesn't make much noise so even if the kitchen door is open, it doesn't disturb anyone. There is a fast bake option but I haven't used it before but it might shorten the process.
Also you can choose the type of crust you want: as my mother loves a very crispy crust, we always go for that option. If you want, you can also add savoury nuts or seeds. Again we haven't tried this option, as everyone in the family is not a big fan of nutty bread. My favourite one is white family bread with a crispy crust and tastes absolutely delicious toasted with raspberry jam and cheese.
All in all, this is a very useful bread maker and, even though I haven't tried other types of bread maker, this is really easy to use and give delicious results from my experience. At a relatively inexpensive price, this would make a very good buy.
Summary: A very useful purchase.
